Time Has Not Been Kind to This Classic RPG

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Buried under Legacy of Ys' redesigned graphics, music, and touch controls still lies a very old game. Legacy revolves around wanderer Adol Christin and his search for a legendary Atlantis-like land of Ys.

  • Summary: While Legacy of Ys is a solid remake of the 16-bit classics, that doesn't mean it holds up particularly well. The unique gameplay keeps the action fast and exciting, but the cliche story and silly cinemas leave a lot to be desired.

  • Conclusion: Even the remake feels dated and may not appeal to the new generation of gamers. If you can ignore the archaic feel, you’ll find a good RPG at its core. There’s no compelling reason to buy Legacy of Ys if you own the originals.

Legacy of Ys: Books I & II review (DS)

HonestGamers
23 March 2009
  • Excerpt: There's a lot to be said about the legacy of Ys. The series' influence on modern Japanese RPGs cannot be understated. Falcom paved the way for action roleplaying with their enormously successful Xanadu , and the Ys series brought the concept to an even wider audience.

Legacy of Ys: Book I & II - Test

Eurogamer
21 April 2009
  • Summary: Ich habe überhaupt kein Problem, Euch Ys I & II als 8 Euro-Download auf der Virtual Console oder sonst einer Konsole zu empfehlen. Ein Retro-Klassiker, von dem niemand modernste Spielgestaltung erwartet. Das Paket allerdings zum Vollpreis anzuraten, verursacht Bauchschmerzen.
